    I really do not know how to call it, but one of my chicks has a Bubble Butt. Last year I had another chick that turned out having the same thing. Instead of having their tail stick out, their back end is rounded. Does that mean anything?

    I am no expert, but I know there are some breeds that are "rumpless" only one I kow of off hand is the true Araucanas are supposedly "rumpless" they are cute! I was hoping my "Araucana" was a rumpless, but she came from a hatchery and is just a plain ol Easter-egger [​IMG] but I love her anyways. [​IMG]

    Well, one is a Red Rock and one is a SLW...I don't believe they are known to be rumpless, but I have nicknamed both, "Bubbles"[​IMG]
